I have just ripped the wheel off swimbo's xtrail and the rear pads need replacing.

Although I am a retired plant mechanic I cant work out of the calliper needs to be unbolted from the backing plate to get the pads out.

Am I missing something or can they be removed by somehow getting the clips/pads out without taking it off (as in a lot of heavy machinery I have worked on)?

Thanks
Steve

Usually with Jap stuff with a sliding caliper, you can take one bolt out and the caliper will swing up away from the disc and then in go the pads.
The bolt that is removed usually has a rubber boot on it to protect the sliding part from corrosion.

Thanks, too easy

By the way, if anyone else is reading this, from the nissan manual the bolt/pin is torqued to 43.2Nm and the wheel nuts to 113Nm (important to avoid disc 'pulsing')
